Linus has a lot of weird requirements. To be honest, I don't think
Bitkeeper is better off for supporting those requirements; I think it
makes the system overall more complicated and harder to use to have so
many different modes of operation.

I'm definitely curious what your vision is. The global repository version
number seems like a big obstacle to some forms of distributed operation.

On the other hand, I sent mail here a while ago with some ideas on how we
could get cheap forms of distributed operation (basically, things which
fall out of the unusual way we do branching and tagging), but it didn't
generate any discussion. It's at
